Self Care Gifts For Your Fave Ladies

November 22, 2020

  I have to be honest…in my humble opinion, self care gifts are the best gifts of all.  There, I said it.  And since every major retailer and website, blogger, etc. known to man is sharing their gift guides with you this week (if they haven’t already!), I will too. Truth be told, it’s a […]

I have to be honest…in my humble opinion, self care gifts are the best gifts of all.  There, I said it.  And since every major retailer and website, blogger, etc. known to man is sharing their gift guides with you this week (if they haven’t already!), I will too.

Truth be told, it’s a fun chance for me to online shop without having to spend any actual money (seriously, I haven’t…don’t worry, husband).

Admittedly, some of these gifts are more along the self-care theme than others, buuut, as your Self Care Bestie, I can pretty much make anything relate to self-care, so here goes!

Convertible Crossbody Bag

Just a super cute, versatile everyday bag – perfect for storing all your self-care needs on the go.  🙂  Or, if you’re like me, perfect for storing goldfish crackers and pacifiers.  I love this bag and I think it’s a great size for busy women who need to keep their hands free because they may or may not be toting toddlers and babies also.

The Prettiest Wine Glasses Ever

Sometimes self-care is a smoothie or a cup of tea, and sometimes…it’s a big ol’ glass of wine!  These wine glasses are literally the prettiest ones I have ever seen (what can I say, I’m a sucker for pink!!) and they would be such a fun present for you mom or MIL, or besties!!  Basically whoever you love to toast with!

Gorgeous Floral Top

This top is so so cute, and yes it’s a crop top, but for mamas who lean a little more modest (like me!) you could pair it with a high waisted skirt or jeans.  Honestly, I just love the pattern and colors of this top – I think it is very #cottagecore and maybe even reminds me a bit of my fave book of all time, Little Women.

Nail Polish

Nail polish is one of those things that I always think about buying for myself but never do.  And manicures are something I always want to get, but never do!  So why not make it easy for mama or your sister (or yourself!) to treat yourself to a little at home mani with a new nail polish or two?  They are so fun and of course, they make great stocking stuffers!

Classic Pair of Earrings

I like to keep it pretty simple when it comes to jewelry, so these classic hoops definitely caught my eye!  They are perfect for everyday, but also lend a hint of something special to a dressier outfit.  Earrings are another gift that the ladies in my life love to receive but rarely buy for themselves!

Stainless Steel Water Bottle

Be good to your gal pal AND the Earth with a pretty stainless steel water bottle.  The gift of hydration is the gift that keeps on giving, no? 😉

Striped Midi Dress

I’m a classic prepster at heart, so this dress just gives me all the heart eyes.  Midi dresses are also amazing in that they are a) stylish and b) a whole outfit in one.  Honestly, the gift of having a simple and chic answer to “what should I wear today?” is golden!  This dress would be adorable for a wedding or shower (when we’re allowed to do those things again!) or even work!

Neutral Jumpsuit

THIS. JUMPSUIT. IS. $19.50.  Need I say more??  Again with the one-and-done outfit, but for NINETEEN dollars and FIFTY cents?!  Such a steal, and it’s so darn cute.  No judgement if you just go ahead a buy it for yourself right now.  #yourewelcome

Fear Less Course + Coaching Sessions

Yep. you heard right.  I’m re-opening my online course, Fear Less for FOUR DAYS ONLY.  Black Friday – Cyber Monday, you can enroll (or enroll a friend or family member who may need a little extra help coping with anxiety and stress!).  The course covers the EXACT techniques I teach to clients in my office, but for a teeeeny tiny fraction of the price of private pay therapy sessions. The course also includes TWO 30 minute private coaching calls with me (that can be used at any time) so I can answer your exact questions and guide you in whatever you are struggling with.  Whether you’ve been waiting for Fear Less to open again for yourself, or you’d like to give someone the gift of clinically proven anxiety relief, now’s the time to do so!  Feel free to email me at to see if Fear Less is right for you, or you can learn more here.

Also noteworthy:  The price of the course will be going up in January 2021, so this is your last chance to enroll at the lowest possible price!


Is it a wallet?  Is it a clutch? Who cares, it’s adorable!  Also, I think it’s actually both – but looook at it!  Pink and sweet with that little fur strap detail?  Again with the heart eyes.  This would be a super fun present for any lady on your list!

Magic Beauty Balm

Another great stocking stuffer idea! This magic beauty balm is amazing for winter skin – dry, chapped lips (anyone else been struggling with that lately??), cuticles that could use a little TLC, even dry elbows or flyaway hair can be tamed with this little balm!


Well there you have it, my friends!  My contribution to the 2020 gift giving season is complete.  I hope you found one (or many!) gifts to give your nearest and dearest ladies.  Or seriously, yourself!  This has been a YEAR for all of us, so anything goes.  Much love to you and have a great week ahead!
